Stephanie O’Sullivan started designing baby & childrenswear in 2012 when her baby was just 3 months old. Frustrated with the products on the market she started researching independent childrenswear labels and felt there was a gap in the market for an affordable, organic cotton eco-friendly practical but beautiful product range that was gender neutral in style and colour.
She began by visiting trade fairs to see what was out there. While a few brands stood out as ticking most of the boxes when it came to forward thinking design, there was still in her view a lack of affordable, practical, beautiful, eco-friendly simple designs – surely there could be a product that had all of these attributes!?
As her background is in design she felt she could turn her skills from interiors to clothing and within a few short months she had sourced the perfect fabric and manufacturer to bring her designs to life and by January 2014, Frank & Nora had a website and a product range.

Organic cotton is cotton that has not been treated with any chemicals. The soil is pure and safe for the environment and surrounding life. By choosing to buy organic cotton you are helping the environment and are safe in the knowledge that the first fabric against your child’s skin is 100% natural and free of any chemicals.
